Can you get pregnant a week before your period?

During a textbook menstrual cycle, it is unlikely for a woman to get pregnant one week before her period is due, but it is not impossible. Some women with regular cycles ovulate more than once in a cycle, so pregnancy is possible at any time.
A.

Are you fertile right before period?

The likelihood of getting pregnant right before your period is extremely low. For women who have a typical cycle of 28 to 30 days or longer and their cycles are regular, it is fairly safe to say that your ovulation occurred between Day 11 and Day 21. The egg is only available for 12 to 24 hours for conception.

  • Are you fertile right after your period?

    You're most fertile at the time of ovulation (when an egg is released from your ovaries), which usually occurs 12 to 14 days before your next period starts. This is the time of the month when you're most likely to get pregnant. It's unlikely that you'll get pregnant just after your period, although it can happen.
  • Can you get pregnant on the first day of your period?

    It's possible, but highly unlikely. You'd have to have a very short menstrual cycle. If your cycle is shorter than average, 22 days for example, then you could ovulate just days after your period, if your period lasted seven days or more. In this case, it's more likely you could get pregnant just after your period.
